http://gandalf.dia.unisa.it/

GandALF 2010       

1st International Symposium on Games, Automata, Logics, and Formal Verification
              Minori, Amalfi Coast, Italy, June 17-18, 2010

CALL FOR PAPERS                 
                 
OBJECTIVES

The aim of the symposium is to bring together researchers from academia and
industry which are actively working in the fields of Games, Automata, Logics,
and Formal Verification. The idea is to cover an ample spectrum of themes,
ranging from theory to concrete applications, and to stimulate
cross-fertilization. Papers focused on formal methods are especially welcome.
Authors are invited to submit original research or tool papers on any relevant
topic in these areas. Papers discussing new ideas that are at an early stage of
development are also welcome.

INDICATIVE LIST OF TOPICS

The topics covered by the conference include, but are not limited to, the
following:

Automata Theory
Automated Deduction
Logical aspects of Computational Complexity
Concurrency and Distributed computation
Decision Procedures
Deductive, Compositional, and Abstraction Techniques for Verification
Finite Model Theory
First-order and Higher-order Logics
Formal Languages
Formal Methods for Complex Systems (e.g., Interactive Systems, Systems Biology)
Games and Automata for Verification
Game Semantics
Game Theory
Hybrid, Embedded, and Mobile Systems Verification
Logics of Programs
Modal and Temporal Logics
Model Checking
Models of Reactive and Real-Time Systems
Program Analysis and Software Verification
Specification and Verification of Finite and Infinite-state Systems
Synthesis and Execution

PAPER SUBMISSION
